Originally built by Symbol Motor Yachts in 1990 as a 57’ she was professionally extended to 60’ in her earlier life to enhance her game fishing capabilities. All running gear was realigned and lengthened to ensure she was perfectly balanced underway. Upgraded to 3” x 258” 316-stainless steel prop shafts and dual A-frame and single pedestal shaft supports.
The vessel underwent a total refit commencing in 2005 and taking over 2-1/2 years by its current Australian owners. The refit went down to every last nut, bolt, fitting and cable. Only the semi-displacement hull and superstructure remained original yet these underwent works including application of biaxial layers of epoxy vinylester below the waterline, redesigned fuel filling station, external shower, lower deck stowage, sink and bait prep cabinet work, built-in upper aft deck stairwell, purpose built BBQ area, exterior deck sofa and dining table layout.
She was then sprayed with Awlgrip 2-pac Urethane Oyster White topcoat overall. The comprehensive inventory of stainless steel work was fully reworked and replaced, as were all the Sunbrella storm covers, sunshades and Microfiber soft furnishings.
All machinery, electrical, electronics, plumbing and associated hardware, internal and external soft and hard furnishings have been upgraded with state of the art equipment & materials.
Under current ownership a fulltime Marine Engineer was commissioned to oversee the refit, along with a consulting Lloyds of London Marine Surveyor & Engineer, to ensure the quality of workmanship was in line with Western Standards. The same Marine Engineer is still employed fulltime on the vessel to ensure she is maintained to the highest possible standard. (Comprehensive refit photos are available upon request)
